This is what I was told when I asked a student why he had signed up for the University of Brighton’s Momentum mentoring programme. I enjoyed the time I spent last year mentoring that student. And I’m delighted to now be working with another student as she completes her studies and carves out a new career path.
Momentum is a programme which matches volunteer mentors with students to help them to build confidence and develop their employability skills. I get so much enjoyment mentoring students through the programme – it’s a true partnership with benefits and learning flowing in both directions.
In the words of the great Oprah Winfrey:
“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.”
